I haven't made this yet, but I love great fish & chips! This recipe comes from Barry C. Parsons. Here's what was said: After years of his experimenting he perfected his homemade version of fish and chips by using part rice flour in the batter recipe for a guaranteed crunch. You can find it at:

How to Make Super Crispy Fish and Chips


  1. To prepare the fish batter:
    Combine dry ingredients.
  2. Add the egg and soda water & whisk together just until the liquid is incorporated. Small lumps in the batter are not a problem.
  3. Cut the fish into about 8 pieces. Season the fish with salt & pepper on both sides.
  4. Dredge the fish pieces in additional rice flour to help the batter stick to the fillets. Dip the pieces into the batter & carefully drop them into deep fryer filled with oil & preheated to 375* F.
  5. Fry a few minutes, about 5 is fine depending on the thickness of the fillets; just until golden brown on both sides. Drain on a wire rack placed over a cookie sheet. Serve immediately.
  6. If you have to fry the fish in more than one batch at a time, hold the fish in a 200* F oven on the draining rack to provide air circulation all the way around the fried fish pieces to prevent from getting soggy.
    Stir ingredients together until blended well.
    Let sit in fridge for an hour or more to let the flavor meld before serving with the fish.
